Andy Cohen welcomes Tracy Pollan and Michael J Fox to the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse.
Tracy is a huge fan of Bravo! Love it when there's a Bravo fan as a guest on Watch What Happens Live.
Michael J Fox said the clubhouse reminds him of Wayne's World! 😂 (Do you think he is right)
Bartender: Joe Campanile owner of Anfora's where all the WWHL staff & Andy hang out after work.
Drinking Game Alert: FOX
Who would you rather? Alex P. Keaton, Marty McFly or Michael J. Fox?
1) Andy fires up the DeLorean instead of opening the vault to reveal some vintage footage of Tracy and Michael.
2) Andy puts Tracy's culinary prowess to the test and plays a game with her titled "Catering to the Stars." Andy asks Tracy what she would cook for certain celebrities.
3) It's time for Michael J Fox to Plead The Fifth!
AC: At what point in your life did you know or come to find out that Meredith Baxter was a lesbian?
MJF: Michael found out a couple years before she went public with it. Meredith had terrible luck with men. Michael is very happy for her.
AC: Have you voted for Leah Thompson on dancing with the stars?
MJF: Michael doesn't watch the show, so no.
AC: Who is more annoying pre-puberty or post puberty Tina Yothers?
MJF: Michael said Tina wasn't annoying but she was very tough. At one point she beat the 💩 out of him. Michael said Tina was very strong and put him in a headlock once. Michael did not plead the fifth! (Watch the clip here)
Paul from New Orleans called to ask Michael what made him go public about having Parkinson's disease?
Michael got to a point where you can't hide having Parkinson's disease anymore. Michael wanted to tell his story and put himself in a position to help other people suffering.
Mark and Dave from Andy's #WWHL crew have been begging Andy to do a shot ski with them. Tonight they got their wish.
GIF of the Night:
Joe Campanale is beverage director and co-owner of Dell'anima, L'Artusi, and Anfora in New York's West Village and of L'Apicio in the East Village. Joe is also Co-Author of Downtown Italian, available on Amazon.com now.
Pat from Pennsylvania asked Michael what his fondest memory of working with Christopher Lloyd is?
Michael recalls when the director was having a fight with the actor who played his father in the Back to the Future movie, they were going at it pretty good. Christopher walked out of his trailer and just shrugged and walk back into his trailer.
Julie from New York asked Tracy what her housewife tagline would be?
"If you're going to confuse me for Sarah Jessica Parker, at least send me Manolo's."
A lot of people confuse Tracy for Sarah Jessica Parker. (I see the resemblance, do you?)
Andy Plays Pollan Oates with Tracy and Michael. (you can watch that clip here)
For playing along Michael and Tracy win a framed Pollan Oates album cover.
A viewer asked why Tracy doesn't use the last name of Fox? Tracy goes by Pollan & not Fox, because it's her name.
Mazel of the Day: Goes to a woman in Germany who robbed a pharmacy armed with nothing more then her breast milk. She actually squirted her breast milk at the pharmacy clerk and walked away with $127!
Jackhole of the Day: Goes to Smith's Bar and Grill in Time Square because they are shutting off their iconic neon sign after 60 years.
Drinking Game: FOX was said 15 times! If you're old enough to play the drinking game you're old enough to know not to drink and drive!
Lisa from Georgia called to ask who showed up from your wedding from Family Ties?
Justine and Gary came from the cast. They got married at an inn in Vermont. It was a very small intimate wedding at the West Mountain Inn.
Michael stays in touch with the cast he just spoke with Justin last week. They get together from time to time. They all generally loved each other. The show ran for seven years.
Andy is so jealous that Michael is so rich. Spin city was on for six years. Four of them were with Michael and two of them were with Charlie Sheen. That was the show that made Charlie rich. 😂
Craig from Boston Massachusetts asked Michael what his favorite meal is that Tracy makes for him from her new cookbook?
The salmon is his favorite and also the chicken.
Marcy from Iowa asked Michael when he was on Family Ties if he was really
like the young republican he played?
Michael says not a lot. Michael was a little to the left of Alex Keaton.
Andy asked Michael what other shows shot on his lot while he was shooting Family Ties?
Cheers, Webster, Taxi & Gina.
Michael recalls a time when they had a crane for a seen they were doing. As they had Michael on the crane, Emanuel Louis came over and scampered onto Michael's lap & they went up together. As it was halfway up Michael was thinking to himself there's a 30-year-old man on my lap! 😂
Kathleen from Massachusetts called to ask if Tracy and Michael get to go to Martha's Vineyard a lot?
Tracy and Michael spend a couple weeks every summer there.
Michael from Queens New York asked Michael J Fox if he's ever thinking about getting back in the DeLorean again?
Michael's not in a hurry to get back in the DeLorean again, he's kind of done.
Bill asked Michael J Fox what is his favorite role that he has played?
Michael loves the current character he's playing on the Good Wife. He's a very complicated character. The writing on the show is incredible.
Pick up Tracy's new cookbook called "The Pollan Family Table" & check out Michael J Fox on The Good Wife on CBS on Sunday's. Don't forget to get tickets to The Michael J Fox's annual Parkinson's gala on November 22nd. Check out Joe Campanile's restaurants
And with that Andy bids us a good night.
